Ostend Beach Festival 2020 has to be postponed because of COVID-19
We must sadly confirm the rescheduling of Ostend Beach Festival due to COVID-19 concerns. The Belgian authorities have just prolonged its prohibition against larger gatherings until August 31st 2020. The prohibition also goes for this year’s Ostend Beach Festival.
Yes, we are heartbroken. We know you are too. In 2020 we need human connection more than ever. But public health and the well-being of our participants, staff, and neighbors in Ostend are our highest priorities. We cannot guarantee that the festival can take place safely, nor can we know if it would be economically possible. Artists might not be allowed to travel or partners might drop out which would make it impossible to organize the event.
What we do know is that Ostend Beach Festval 2021 can take place!
Why do we not postpone later in the summer? Given the painful reality of COVID-19, one of the greatest global challenges of our lifetimes, we believe this is the right thing to do. A postponement of about 1 to 2 months would create immense logistical challenges and the risk of the pandemic might still be too high. There is no guarantee that we could bring you the quality festival you all deserve. In 2020 we will reset the clock to zero and start over in 2021 with a brand new beach gathering.
The next edition will take place on 9, 10 & 11 July 2021 as you know it at the beach of Ostend. You will find all information how to swap your tickets into 2021 tickets on ostendbeach.be

The following hosts will be coming to our Clubbing Saturday. Please welcome: VERSUZ, MATERIA, MAGAZINE CLUB (Lille) and BACK TO OUR HOUSE! They are ready to make this day legendary, are you? 🔥
★ Welcoming our new host VERSUZ: Boasting a labyrinth of rooms, Versuz is more of an entertainment complex than a club. Located in Hasselt, Belgium, it features a main dancefloor, a 1,200-capacity multi-purpose event room, an R&B-focused floor, a VIP area, a patio and a secret after-party venue. But that’s not all, as the Belgian superclub also offers an Italian restaurant, a whiskey and cigar lounge and a summer pool party area.
The club is famous for its flagship Saturday night event, Nightlife, which champions a wide spectrum of house, soulful and electronic sounds. On Fridays, Versuz puts trap, ragga, hip-hop and R&B in the spotlight as part of its Vibestr event series. The club also hosts an affordable party, called House of Students, on Thursdays, whereas the Monday slot is reserved for the Monnight concept.
Having booked global dance music heroes like Fedde Le Grand, Oliver Heldens, Joris Voorn, and Purple Disco Machine over the last year, the club has further cemented its reputation as one of Belgium’s dance music hotspots. Versuz has also hosted the Hasselt events of Ibiza institutions Elrow and Pacha, while this year will see disco extravaganza Glitterbox make its debut at the club.
★ Welcoming our new host BACK TO OUR HOUSE: Back To Our House is a nightlife experience, conceptualised in 2020 from the friendship between Mario Willems (DiMaro) and Jan Mortelmans (Yamo). The 2 honoured dj’s played weekly in the vibrant Belgian clubscene from 2000 to 2010 and feel there’s a need to bring back that specific groove to the current stages. Back To Our House dj’s are playing the vibe from the nillies for a soundtrack that showcases house music in its purest forms. They create an inclusive and uplifting party atmosphere designed to unite all ages, persuasions and walks of life on the dancefloor.
